WHAT ARE READINESS MONITORS?
Vista Auto Repair - The emissions control systems on a vehicle have a number of various sub-systems which evaluate and control the output of emissions on a vehicle. Some systems or "monitors" may only run 1 time per 24 hours, and that's only if the driver meets the manufacturer's requirements to cause them to run.
Top 3 reasons monitors are "not ready"
#1 - Recent battery change, dead/jumped-battery, disconnection of battery terminals
#2 - Recent manual reset of a check engine light with a scanner
#3 - A fault has occurred in one or more of the emissions systems
